Within the Milky Way

a smooth start to life

pathways mapped by smiling eyes

nourished by mum’s milk

 

smooth sailing, my boy

galactic love, milky way

be the star you are

 

smooth skin, blank canvas

before growth, wisdom, creases

milk teeth sprinkled smile

 

paths smooth, sometimes bumps

life’s jostles may spill your milk

strength in glass half full
